before the obama administration, and we are so focused the present -- we did a conference at the old center i think for a five years ago on this very topic of secrecy. and i went through the transcript last night, and now that i've listened to did i want to say, we think we're having the same old conversation but we are not. we are not really looking towards solutions and remedies, and where we stand in terms of the interests of these between long and policy actually. so what do you know it or not we have actually come some distance, which is what the next that is going to talk about. so get some coffee, get some cookies and come back. thank you. [applause] >> [inaudible conversations] >> wednesday from the british house of commons, prime minister's question time. because of daylight savings time in the uk, this week prime minister's questions will air at eight am eastern instead of its usual 7 a.m. you can see it live here on c-span2. now more from the fordham law school conference. next, we hear from former cia acting general counsel john rizzo, and former justice department inspec
the obama -- i mean, from the bush to the obama administration in the transition. the presidential candidates, even the nominee's authority do not get really president-elect bush called the stuff in terms of regimes. the two candidates i assume governor romney is getting these now. the nominees of the party are offering intelligence briefings by career people, but the analytical or what we used to call briefings, which is one of the many euphemisms from cia's panchayat to purge from my memory because i can't get it out of my head. but their analytical. they are not operational. they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operation that only happens once the election takes place. once it is in the case of the new president, obviously a president obama is reelected, this will not happen. but that is when they get the review above the ongoing covert programs. that is some president-elect obama first had a detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. by that time, much of it, or suppose "the new york times" probably had 85% of it. but that wasn't the
discussion on today's job report with former obama administration economic adviser austin golsby that's later tonight 10:00 p.m. our conversation is with you the viewer because we're independent. >>here's how you can connect with "viewpoint with eliot spitzer." >>questions, of course, need to be answered. >>we will not settle for the easy answers. 1cccm01398
. >> were going to move onto a topic, a foreign policy question. congresswoman, you come to obama administration of course we seem has been criticized for its handling of the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in libya. this attack resulted in the death of ambassador chris stevens but we also now know that he made multiple attempts to get more security and that these efforts went unheeded. do you believe that the obama administration mishandled the situation even after and also in the aftermath of the attack? what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? hochul: absolutely mishandled, and to learn how that their cries for help from people asking for additional support, and to know they were unanswered is unacceptable. estimate of the house armed service committee when we get back to washington will conduct oversight hearings and make sure that our ambassadors and all the consulate personnel across this globe are protected. we've got to make sure they have within me. i would not do as republican leadership in congress, cut $300 million from embassy security
and the obama administration. the next president will reap the rewards of work already done. so it would be the ultimate irony if having strongly criticized every measure that contributed to these positive trends mitt romney ends up presiding over what she would surely call the romney recovery. for more on this, go to cnn/fareed for a link to my "washington post" column. and let's get started. >>> let's get straight to our terrific panel to talk about the economy and obviously a little politics, as well. joe klein is "time's" political economist. amity shlaes is director for the 4% project at the george w. bush institute and author of the forthcoming "coolidge: a biography of america's 30th president." ken rogoff, whom i mentioned, is a professor of economics at harvard university, and amity shlaes is the author of thompson reuters digital and author of "politocrats." become back to both of you. ken, the piece i mentioned, you and carmen rhine hahart wrote almost a political piece about how the u.s. was doing. you said, look, compared with other big financial crises that meet the recessi
in ohio. obama administration made the epa a dirty term. >> how it could make a huge difference of who wins the election in the buckeye state. we have an inside look at ohio. >> welcome to cold country ohio eastern and southeastern ohio where mining dots the landscape. pining offers some of the best paying blue collar jobs. >> 60 years 100 percent medical, ten tal. >> they left to be a carpenter. they have 6 miners as a family. >> is the epa a dirty word around here? >> yes, sir. >> i have a little gas on the way in a cold mine dirty coal, fireplace being shut down left and right because of epa. that is not a good word around here. >> that helps explain the signs out here. >> the co-op rate tors are putting a lot of money around here. the signs were printed by co-op rate tors. >> new federal emissions regulations have been tough. in ohio alone a dozen have shut down. 7 ohio coal mines have also closed. they backed president obama in 08 is not endorsing. >> now vote democrat rick auger. that is just the way it is. >> they will vote democrat whether or not the guy is totally worthless. >
think that, unfortunately, the demoatic party, the obama administration campaign has trapped the g.o.p. and mitt romney into a box by saying we are the party that defends the 1%, and in return, we're trying to, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come bac at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checkedhe 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they think that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are not here to protect this. the policies really do not work. i don't think the people are neil: interesting to me, and i don't cas on anyone, but if you make it a point and call the other guy a bs in "ro
the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about today's report. busier highways.see usn on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. this is hayden. he's five years that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenue - bypasses sacramento and sends every k through 12 dollar straight to our local schools... every school. for them. for all of us. vote yes on thirty-eight. month there was quite a bit of controversy when the jobs
% enrichment activities. but the key problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it, refuses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration, and there are rumors they are think of doing this after they're elected, were to offer iran a bigger carrot, as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no
growth rate of the economy. it's actually the number of jobs that the obama administration predicted last february. now, we're way short of that and we will remain short of it as long as this president is pursuing these policies. but governor romney isn't putting out there anything other than what happens if we restore basic health to the american economy. it's achievable. couple major things. first of all, the tax reform proposal that the governor has put on the table is absolutely essential and every independent economist that has looked at it says it will create a lot of new jobs. you bring down the rates, broaden the base, bringing down the rates and broadening the base encourages productive investment as opposed to tax driven investment. it's what reagan did. i was there when the congress did it. it can help create a tremendous amount of jobs. we're all aware in this country we have this tremendous potential in the energy sector. some of it has been materiali materialized. over the objections and resistance of the federal government. the government will do a number of things like bui
implication that the barack obama administration has. when i listen to these republicans, they're despicable. they practice all types of obstacles in front of this man. they lie. romney is a serial liar. host: let's go back to the economy. talk to me about the comparisons in your mind about the u.s. economy and overseas economy and why your optimism is, in fact, or, as you say, based on how our economy is doing versus economies from overseas. >> well, relatively speaking, when you take a look at some of the european economies, particularly some of the cutbacks in government and all it did was fire the economy up into a worse situation, when you take a look at france, they elected a new president there, and he's trying to implement the same type of progressive policies that the obama administration has done. it's clear that stimulus has worked despite the distortions about it. it appears this appears to be working in some other parts of europe. therefore, i think when you take a relative view of it, and you understand that we're recovering from the deepest recession since the depression, i me
misguided way the obama administration has handled this entire affair, from the lack of security enhancements requested in libya by our people before the september 11 attack, inadequate response on september the 11th itself and then this crazy explanation for weeks and weeks after, the whole thing was caused by the mohammed video. now what you see playing out is the administration's decision to treat this terrorist attack as a law enforcement matter, not as part of the war on terror, but as if it is a bank robbery. what we should have done with that suspect, when we learned he was in turkish custody was tell the turkish authorities, we want him. don't send him back to tunisia. this is not a matter of international extradition. this is a matter of taking somebody who has been engaged in war against the united states and we want him. we want hill and want to take him to gitmo to interrogate him. jon: i'm reminded when a couple of the suspect iss in the attack on the uss cole were apprehended and given back to yemen to be held in custody there. they escaped. so here is this tunisia
that, public-private partnerships. something the obama administration is in talking about for a number of years. a small amount of seed money from the government that brings in a lot of private money sitting on the sidelines, that's looking for investments in things that pay longer-term. toll roads is a classic example. so we do far less than we could do an infrastructure as we don't have appropriate structures. you do see interesting things happening. i mean, new york is set up an infrastructure bank to do with the state level was not at the federal level. chicago, mayor emmanuel announced the launch of a $7 infrastructure project in chicago, again to bring private money sitting on the sidelines. so that's a very good example of what can be done. the u.s. is losing ground on a lot of key components of infrastructure and for understandable reasons. governments don't have an awful lot of money. so if you're waiting on the line on government appropriations in government borrowing for infrastructure investments, that is not the best way forward in the current environment. so that's a very
business network. giving you the power to prosper. melissa:. lori: the obama administration says it is still investigating the attacks in at the consulate in benghazi but with days before the election the american people are unhappy with the job done there. according to latest "fox news poll", 39% approve the job obama is doing on libya and 47% voters disapprove. lou dobbs is here. you've been a outspoken critic on the handling of the benghazi situation so what does the poll reflect? >> the poll reflects the sentiment, without knowing the details, understand that this administration has stonewalled, refused to be forthcoming not details but even broad brush strokes what was going on in benghazi before the attack. how much warning we had. it was, it's, it's a time for frankly, this administration, it is past time. the american people decided in large measure, i don't know what the percentage is, but an administration that won't be forthcoming, that has been contradictory, unrelentingly revisionist in its statements, basically amounts to a lie, to the american people. and i think t
the treasury in terms of what to do next with the gse is. and presumably, an obama administration would follow something along those lines after dealing with the fiscal cliff and tax reform and all the other issues that are on the agenda. what about romney administration? what sorts of proposal, if any, have been articulated? >> well, let me make it clear that i did not say that there had been a proposal by the administration. they produced a long awaited white paper in january of 2011. a government solution, he plans solution, or a hybrid solution. i am not being facetious in saying that. so we haven't had a proposal from either side. the mortgage market has changed because of that and i think that the republicans and the administration, as they came in, would want to go more towards a free-market kind of solution without any gse. i would hope that the suggestion that i made and the mortgage bankers association made would be seen as something that both sides could live with, and that it is largely a private capital solution. there is not a freddie or fannie. they're our are capital companies
another continuing resolution used to fund the governments, the obama administration had not passed a budget was coming up. the republicans, the republican leaders believe it was an easy vote, and their own members voted against it. and the appropriations committee , which designs these continuing resolutions and all other spending bills was serious and they insisted on meeting with the. they said, you need to punish these members. we are the ones being punished. were doing everything you want us to do, cutting spending, and these guys still one vote for it. any to fall in line. and he said family can't do that anymore. it will make mars of the. >> so they don't feel like they're in a position to lead on matters of the debt ceiling or anything else. >> in fact, i think it is interesting. this fall but has been devoted to a the debt ceiling. specifically, you know, long magazine stories to the so-called grand bargain between the speaker and obama that fell apart. from my standpoint all of that is when and sales, with all due respect to the authors of those stories and books because t
's taking so long? >> remember, the obama administration testified in a hearing that we had that they were watching this or witnessing this virtually in real time. we have survivors that were there on the scene. they know exactly what happened. when i went to libya and i visited with the people there at our embassy in tripoli, there was no doubt in their minds what had happened. there was no mention of the video. there was no mention of a mob. but they know exactly what happened, plus supposedly according to press reports, we had drones in the air. so i think we do know what happened. we have four dead americans and we have an administration that is not being held accountable. it's been mislieding the public and they're not releasing the video and audio we though that they have. >> steve: why aren't they being held accountable? i know a couple days ago, the president sat down for a local tv interview with a guy from kusa out in denver and a couple of times he said, were they denied requests for help? we're talking about the c.i.a. guys who said, we want to go in and help those guys and app
that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that it would be energy and social issues, women's access to health care being chief among them. host: curtis hubbard, thank you so much for your time this morning. guest: thanks for having me. >> we have the managing director of our and our partners joining us this morning. this is the financial times this morning showing that colorado is pretty even. some have shown governor romney ahead. the denver post notes that president obama has been to the state more than any president in 40 years. he carried it more than any other democrat in 2008. how are republicans responding? guest: republicans are very energized right now. i think you're seeing now from governor romney and paul ryan. host: what the need to have in place in order to win colorado? guest: typically, you start building your ground game about six months out from the erection. clearly, our cand
cash to get right now? this is why it's so important. the obama administration said the following, obama for america -- let's go to the bank of america statement first. bank of america, we don't discuss client details but this loan has been disclosed as required by federal election commission rules and it is a standard commercial loan at a market competitive rate. that's what they say. i cannot prove that, carl, that it is market competitive rates. obama for america issued the following statement in regards to this loan. the loan was reported in mid-october in our fec chris closure and was covered by the press. it is a line of credit established by the campaign to ensure cash flow flexibility. we have not drawn on it. now, in addition to the obama campaign, mitt romney borrowed some money. he didn't go to the bank of america. went to the bank of georgetown, and he took out a loan of $20 million, the rate even more attractive, 0.045%. that was a loan taken out august 22nd, payable in 2013. there are some differences here because, again, bank of america, a public bank showned by the
the election of the obama administration and in your book you talk about the complicity of the obama administration in causing what happened. you can do it better than me. >> i think that the great sort of disaster that we have never overcome in the country is the wall street bailout. the financial crisis and the wall street bailout and we still the banks today are bigger than they were before. we haven't put any kind of serious regulation on them. we haven't broken them up. and, you know, we're dealing with, you know, regulation that are totally inadequate for the guys still. and i think this is allowing this to happen, and remember, it was one of the first it was hanging over the country's head when barack obama was sworn in as president, and his first move in office were to signal continuity with the bush administration, with hank paulson, by the way, and, you know, i don't know if president bush is here, but -- [laughter] but the bank bailout are one of the , i mean, this is the great outrage of our time inspect is what launched the tea party movement. this is what launched occup
made more attempts to -- do you believe the obama administration mishandled this leading up to the attack and what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? >> absolutely it was mishandled and to learn there were cries for help, literally people asking for additional support and that they went unanswered, that's unacceptable. when we get back to washington, we will conduct oversight hearings and make sure our ambassadors and the conflicts are protected. we have to make sure they have what they need and the republican leadership at $300 million from embassy security. we need to make sure we have the resources and protection they need. i don't think there is any other explanation other than it was not handled properly -- was not handled properly and i believe the congress's oversight capacity needs to make sure this doesn't happen again. it is challenging many going to these other countries but on the anniversary of my/loan, we should have been on heightened security. i would make sure those abroad to support our interest and other countries and try
that meant. and so is the obama administration we don't have access to advertisements like you can see across the country. are they doing something to define it that way out there? because the president really does need some control over the tea party. >> ok. so the first question about voter protection. what does the battle look like there? >> i mean, yeah i just will -- i will say this. every year there are problems in every single state with voting. those of you who go to voting places know primarily what those problems involve. there are nice sometimes most often elderly people whose task it is to help people get to the voting place. sometimes, those remember montgomery county nobody taught them how to turn on the machines so people showed up to vote the machines weren't turned on. this is not a imcl conspiracyy to deny people the right to vote. this is a fact that a lot of nice people had no idea how to work a machine. that is 99% of what goes on. every year we put people we task them to be ballot watch. watch out for what's happening and we've got to -- reports of any problems anywhere.
. the professor said somewhere along the way, obama got side tracked. >> he had this idea, and his position, but it is so volatile and promising at the same time during his administration, and naturally i think that was that region instead of asia. >> most americans care most about what happens at home. millions of them are without work. we will get the latest numbers on friday and no doubt voters will look to that as a cue to how obama has done. >>>en emunemployment has hit a record high, the jobless rate is exceptionally high in areas that continued to implement austerity efforts. the average job lts rate across the 17-member euro zone was 11.6%. the figure was up from 11.5% in august. spain marked the highest unemployment rate in the euro zone at a record 25.8%. the jobless rate at 15.7%. the latest unemployment data available for greece is for july when it was 25.1% and that's up 23 percentage points from a year earlier. panasonic says it's likely to suffer a huge loss in the business year through march 2013. that reverses the earlier forecast of a swing back to profit. >> i feel deeply
. >> obama has had four years and really has not come up with anything to show the people that he did better than before, than the administration we had before, so i figure it is time for a change. >> if the majority of retirees share this view on election day, romney may take florida, an important part of winning the election. >> in a minute, we will look at unemployment in europe. >> first, other stories making headlines around the world. >> tensions are high in the tunisian capital after clashes between police and salafist muslims left italy will people dead. >> russia has launched a rocket from the steppes of kazakhstan, headed for the international space station. the rocket is carrying a spacecraft loaded with supplies including hardware, fuel, and water. >> following the resignation of former german president christian wulff, opposition leaders are calling for new rules on the president's salary. they say presidents should no longer be entitled to full salary for the rest of their lives if they leave office prematurely. >> eurozone economies are still struggling to pick up steam, and n
is misguided. the professor says somewhere along the way, obama got sidetracked. >> like the working without nuclear weapons, he had an idea and this global vision, but middle east was so volatile and promising at the same time. during his administration. and naturally i think he was sort of shifted to that region instead of asia. >> but most americans care most about what happens at home. millions of them are still without work. we'll get the latest numbers on friday and no doubt voters will look to that as a cue to how obama has done. >>> opposition commanders in syria feared government forces would use a cease-fire to rebuild their strength and they say that's what's happened. they claim government pilots have escalated their bombing campaign. both sides said they would lay down their arms to observe the muslim holiday. neither side respected the truce. human rights activists say more than 500 people were killed during the four-day period that ended on monday. and opposition forces say government fighter jets bombed at least five cities on wednesday. they say the air strikes killed at lea
christie, who toured the damage along with fema administrator craig fugate and president obama. one man, iowa congressman, steve king, thinks fema has a fever. >> i want to get them the resources that are necessary to lift them out of this water and this sand and the ashes and the death that's over there in the east coast and especially in the northeast. but not one big shot that just opens up the checkbook, because they spent it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> congressman king, who is up for re-election, seems to be echoing the sentiments of some of his republican, including senator lynndie graham who said, quote, we can't borrow money every time something goes wropg in america and ron paul who asks, quote, why should people like myself, who not too long ago had a house on a gulf coast, it's expensive, risky and dirngous. why should somebody from the central part of the united states rebuild my house? after all, fema represents big government. gucci bag and trip to the massage parlor would be tops on your list if y
the wealthy isn't change. >> they are pitching their closing arguments for president obama, a theme of economic progress and that he needs more time to finish the job. for governor romney, argue the administration fumbled economy and urged voters to elect a businessman who knows how to fix it. david and liz, back to you. >> rich edson, thank you so much. david: forget about the sluggish economy. we have the ceo of one company that has been booming for five straight years. catamaran ceo will share the secret to his company's amazing success straight ahead. liz: amazing success? look at this right here in our studio. you're watching the tupperware ceo, exclusively with the companies products to use. he can cook too? he will tell us why his stock has been soaring over the last three months and frankly over the past couple years. hi, rick. bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good c
. that's the first story. >> did obama fibia? in the last head to head, one issue was left unsaid. yep, in monday's debate in foreign policy, allegedly mitt romney passed on pressing the president on his administrations, inconsistent explanation and benghazi. while romney made a point of not quibling he was mocking. >> i think governor romney hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. you mentioned the navy and we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. govern, we have fewer horses and baonettes because the nature of our military changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. we have the ships that go underwater and nuclear sub marines. >> it is so silly. and we have these things called aircraft carriers. he is really slow. we know what aircraft carriers are. who can for dwet this on the -- who can forget this on the expense of mitt? >> i am glad you recognize al-qaeda is a threat. when asked a few months ago, you said russia. not al-qaeda. you said russia. in the 1980s or now, calling to ask for their foreign policy back. >> that was m
that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm not aware that that's ever happened. i mean, it certainly happened in particular jurisdictions. you remember in 9/11, they moved the mayoral election in new york city. so certainly there's press department for in the catastrophic circumstance moving the date, but i've never seen that in a presidential election and i'd be very surprised if that happens. >> john harwood, stay safe today. appreciate your perspective on all of this. we'll still be dealing with this football metaphor when the game ends. >> when we co
